Published on Friday, 24 November 2023 at 11:30:00 AM

Important upgrades to the Jarrahdale Cemetery car park (adjacent to Kitty’s Gorge) are well underway, improving accessibility at one of the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s biggest tourism attractions.

Stage 1 works are running from 13 -30 November 2023, and will include the upgrade of the existing car park, along with the integration of kerbing, a dedicated disability bay, efficient drainage systems, and clearly defined line markings.

A new footpath has already been installed, seamlessly connecting to the existing pathway network. 

The project is part of a broader investment at the cemetery and trailhead to improve access, and marks the beginning of a two-staged upgrade plan aligning with the Shire’s commitment to improve community amenities.

In addition to the car park upgrades, the plan includes the construction of a new toilet facility at Jarrahdale Cemetery, addressing a long-standing community need.

These upgrades will increase the existing capacity by 54%.

Shire President Rob Coales said the upgrades were one of many key projects set to improve the experiences of both locals and tourists in Jarrahdale.

“These developments are a significant step forward in ensuring our community enjoys modern, accessible, and safe amenities,” President Coales said.

Temporary road closures may take place on Atkins Street and at Jarrahdale Cemetery during the construction period.
